Ryan has been gone a lot this week due to the T Livestock Show AND parent-teacher conferences at the high school. He's been leaving before 6 am, and returning home between 8 and 9:30 pm. Well, Wednesday night at 9:30 pm, he brought home a sheep from the livestock show. I got to help herd the sheep into the pig pen in the dark. (That was fun....)
Yesterday our three turkey chicks escaped their box. I'm not sure if they figured out how to escape, or the chickens helped, or what, but when I went to let the chickens out of their coop- the turkeys were running free. I ended up letting all the chickens outside, closed the door again, and then attempted to catch the turkeys. They have a lot of their feathers now, and can fly surprisingly well. There was hissing and fluffed feathers, but I caught two of the three. I just could not get that last one. (I think he will be dinner come Thanksgiving....) He was in my hands two or three times, and got free again. That squirmy beast. So we waited for Ryan to come home, as he is more clever than I am at turkey catching.
